Round table: "Bigger than football? Just how far can eSports go?"

FIFA World Footall Museum English

Video games are already almost indistinguishable from real football. Millions of people play them and almost as many watch them doing it. The community is growing all the time and becoming professional. Initial experts are already saying that eSports in the future will have a similar reach to what football has today.

Compared with Switzerland, other countries are already some way ahead. In Germany there is already a virtual Bundesliga with games broadcast, and the situation is similar in England and Spain. Now is an ideal time both to take stock and to look to the future. What are the potential ways of making eFootball more attractive to the general public? Will it always be a "streaming sport" or will eSports events soon be filling stadia here like they already do in South Korea and Japan?

Come and have your say. Entry is free.
